    They have “Neighborhood Watch”, you’re just providing a version limited to the kitchen, right? 😉

    I can tell Ruby is innocent because she looks to sad to have scored any bread or sweet potatoes.

    Dog? Kitchen? Innocent? Nah.

    There seems to be some suspicious activity occurring at the Annex today!

    Saw something similar today, after hearing the distinct crinkle of a cereal bag … that I’d left on the island/cart. Stinkers!

    “Just walking,” you said, right? Just walking, really? You really want us to believe that you’re just going to cross. Hmm. You mean you’re not going to stick your face on the counters, the trash and such. I would like to ask somebody else in the household please.
    Twink!

    innocent you say? hmmmm

  14. Amy / Layla the Malamute on February 10, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    Oh the many wonderful things in the kitchen. So wonderful that both Layla and Casey (the lab) have been throwing up from raiding the garbage. The garbage that was tied up and in a closed garbage can. I think they’re part raccoon.

    You just have to cruise your house for any bad thing lurking around. They like to blame you for getting into something in the kitchen, but you wait until you find the snake that creeped in, Gratitude will be yours!

    Have any of your dogs developed a CD/DVD obsession? Our R likes to gnaw on them, if you can imagine such a thing. He took a CD out my zippered bag, which also had real food in it. He ignored the food and destroyed the CD. Then, just the other day, he counter surfed, ignoring the food and tried to steal another CD. What’s with this boy? Have you ever heard of a dog CD obsession before?

    And no gates to get caught in! 😉

    Open mouth. delete contents.

    Hey Ruby! If there’s nothing good on the counters, that trash can looks ripe for the picking! Uh… not that I’d do that or anything…
    not now that we have that $200 trash can Meeshka’s mom recommended….
    Luv,
    Dave

    We can’t imagine you did anything other than a good safety patrol, Ruby.

    Ruby….they just don’t understand the community service you are providing by patrolling the kitchen to make sure nothing is out of place & that their is not a speck of food on floor to bring ants in the house. You should get a special treat for the excellent service you are providing “free of charge”.
    Woo Woo,

    Ruby, I empathize with you. I too am constantly being scrutinized for my patrol trips to the kitchen, and my character is constantly assailed with slurs like “counter surfer.” It is a sad, sad world when fine canines such as us cannot travel freely through a kitchen without Big Brother watching us.

    Beckett

    PS – have you ever had applesauce? I scored a whole package of that a few days ago and it was DELISH!

  27. Houndstooth on February 10, 2010 at 8:01 am

    Of course it’s innocent! There could be a cat or tree rat in there trying to steal the food!

    Did you find anything good in there???:)

    Love,

    Woo! Did you score something good? 🙂

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
